Drone Surveying, Mapping and Modeling Online Training Course
This course is designed for UAS pilots looking to expand their skillset to include surveying, mapping, or modeling. It will lead you through the basics of UAS surveying from flight planning to data capture. No prior knowledge of the subject matter is required.
What is UAS surveying? It is the creation of maps, 3d models, and other geographical data via drone. It is most commonly done by taking many images at different locations and then using software to merge them all together, creating a geometrically accurate map. In practice, this is accomplished using software that automates both flight and image capture.
Visual images, maps, and models are the most common deliverables. UAS surveying also encompasses data captured with infrared and multispectral / hyperspectral cameras. By utilizing different sensors and capture methods, drones are able to provide useful data to a wide range of industries. This course will show you how to do this and more.
